for the first time in american history. now nearly four years into his first term, with the war in iraq over and the war in afghanistan still on, with osama bin laden dead, auto industry rescued, economy out of the freefall it was in but nowhere near where it needs to be, tonight the democratic party makes its case for four more years for president barack obama. an address tonight from the first lady. keynote tonight from a young fast-rising star who even republicans say could be the first latino president. the democrats make their case for young voters, latinos, for women, middle class. it starts tonight. msnbc's prime time coverage of the democratic national committee begins right now. ♪ >> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow. here with me are ed schultz,al sharpton, steve shmitt. lawrence o'donnell will be joining us as well. leading our coverage from charlotte, north carolina, the site of the democratic convention this year, it is, of course, my friend and colleague chris matthews. chris, the data is mixed on whether republicans got any sort of bump in the polls out of their co
that has been tested and proven. four years ago i promised to end the war in iraq. we did. i promised to refocus on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and we have. we've blunted the taliban's momentum in afghanistan and in 2014 our longest war will be over. a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al qaeda is on the path to defeat, and osama bin laden is dead. >> tonight we pay tribute to the americans who still serve in harm's way. we are forever in debt to a generation whose sacrifice has made this country safer and more respected. we will never forget you. and so long as i'm commander in chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. when you take off the uniform, we will serve you as well as you've served us, because no one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job or a roof over their heads or the care that they need when they come home. around the world we've strengthened old alliances and forged new coalitions to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. we've reasserted our power across the pacific and stood up to china on
of mass destruction were never found in iraq. good his foreign policy centered on going into iraq and getting rid of those weapons of mass destruction was alive. his administration showed remarkable indifference to the plight of most americans. what happened in new orleans and katrina is a good example. mitt romney and the republicans would like to pretend the and ministration did not happen. taking a five trillion $10-year surplus bequeaths to it by the clinton administration and turning into a a giant new deficit and saying to wall street, do whatever you want. we are not going to look at you. he makes the case against mitt romney. that is one of the most important things. and with that kind of cynicism, the special interests to win everything. the only thing we can get our democracy back is if we understand we have got to be active, and it is not just paying taxes and serving on juries and showing up. we have got to be engaged, mobilize, energized. we have got to demand this work for us as ordinary people, as average working americans who need an economy working for us, not jus
to end the war in iraq. and he won't tell us how he'll end the war in afghanistan. well, i have and i will. and while my opponent would spend more money some military hardware that our joint chiefs don't even want, i will use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and runways, because after two wars, that have cost us thousands of lives and over a trillion dollars, it's time to do some nation building right here at home. you can choose a future where we reduce our deficit without sticking it to the middle class. independent experts say that my plan would cut our deficit by $4 trillion. and last summer i worked with republicans in congress to cut a billion in spending because those of us who believe government could be a force for good should work harder than anyone to reform it so it's leaner and more efficient and more responsive to the american people. i want to reform the tax code so that simple, fair and ask the wealthiest households to pay tax on incomes over $250,000. the same rate
